Gay Byrne's wife Kathleen Watkins has revealed her husband has left hospital and thanked the public for their support.

Ms Watkins said the veteran broadcaster received a "deluge" of well-wishes.

Gay told listeners on Lyric FM that his doctors suspected he may have prostate cancer.

Kathleen said the family would know more from today about his treatment.

"I want to really say a big thank you to the nation for the deluge of cards and well-wishes and phone calls and everything else, beautiful messages and loving messages for Gay; he really appreciates it all and so do we in the family," she told Live 95fm.

"He spent the week in hospital and he is coming home today, and from today we will know what the treatment is."
